Default soybeans

Greetings

I wonder if consuming soybeans (soya beans) goes with LCHF ?
I have stiff knees and I've read that soybeans are good for stiff joints.
I've looked up soybeans nutrition facts and it says:

(Amount Per 100 grams)
Calories 446
Total Fat 20 g
Saturated fat 2.9 g
Polyunsaturated fat 11 g
Monounsaturated fat 4.4 g
Cholesterol 0 mg
Sodium 2 mg
Potassium 1,797 mg
Total Carbohydrate 30 g
Dietary fiber 9 g
Sugar 7 g
Protein 36 g

So what do you think?
I'm also looking for some soy beans recipes, if there are any around ?

my VLC/HF regime cant do this. I only eat 30g of carbs in a day total so this would not work for me. It really depends on how carbs are effecting you personally and how much you are relying on diet for reversing diabetes. I am not taking medication so I rely 100% on what I eat to manage the situation so I couldnt do soybeans

Like hftmrock, I have to limit soybeans. But I do use black soy beans in chili. Spread out in something else, the small amount doesn't seem to bother my BG. I will also eat some dairy-free products that have soy in them.

But I don't expect the amount I eat would show any benefit to joints. However, the estrogen in the soy does mess with my hormones.

I don't regard them as food and wouldn't touch them. They're full of "anti-nutrients" and hormone mimics (disrupters).

They are substances found in many plant foods which block or interfere with the absorption, metabolism and/or utilization of OTHER nutrients, whether in that same food or from other dietary sources.

From Google:

"What is an anti nutrient?
Antinutrients are natural or synthetic compounds found in a variety of foods — especially grains, beans, legumes and nuts — that interfere with the absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. They can even get in the way of the digestive enzymes, which are key for proper absorption."

"ABSTRACT. Soybean is rich in dietary protein but contains some anti-nutritional factors (ANFs), including phytates, tannins, trypsin inhibitors and oligosaccharides. It is used with cereals in weaning foods to improve the protein content and supply essential amino acids.May 10, 2015|

"What foods are high in phytic acid?
High-phytate foods, such as grains, nuts, and legumes, can raise the risk of iron and zinc deficiency. As a countermeasure, strategies such as soaking, sprouting and fermentation are often employed. For those who eat meat regularly, deficiencies caused by phytic acid are not a concern."
